Anyone who swears by The Hangover is likely to be disappointed by its sequel, which as it turns out is a carbon copy of the earlier film. With The Hangover Part II, director Todd Phillips has made the exact same movie all over again. Except that he’s set it in Thailand, and the jokes aren’t that funny anymore.The Hangover Part II is not without a few laughs, but the operative word here is ‘few’. The best jokes in this film, incidentally all appear in the trailer. I’m going with two out of five for The Hangover Part II. Prepare to seriously underwhelmed.

Sad but Hangover Part 2 ironically suffers a hangover from the record-busting first part.part two relies more on action and mayhem to tickle your funny bone. There is too much of running helter-skelter in the sleazy downtown, with gangsters and drug dealers chasing the threesome (Stu, Alan, Phil). And there is too little of repartee and rip-roaring goof-ups to keep the grins on overdrive. End result? You barely manage a few luke-warm laughs here and there, although, rest assured, you do not get bored. It’s all just okay, but not as heady as the original Hangover. Don’t go expecting too much and you could have a good time.

I hate to be the bearer of bad news but there is no way to break this gently. The Hangover 2 is a depressing, largely mirthless and in parts, a frankly ugly movie.There are a few good moments, created mostly by Galifianakis, who at one point, describes himself as a stay-at-home-son. But mostly The Hangover Part 2 is a series of tedious mishaps involving a silent monk, gangsters, she-males and Mr. Chow, played by Ken Jeong, the abusive criminal from the first film. The jokes are tacky, limp and just plain icky. I don’t think Bangkok will recover from this for a long time. I’m going with two stars.

The Hangover Part II is not a step-up in that sense. Filmmaker Todd Philips is beleaguered with mediocre writing. Because of that you mostly laugh on situations than actual dialogue. It is, then, left to the actors to grapple with the predictability that the script offers them and the best way to recovery in such cases is to be spontaneous. The combined effort of the mostly-male cast saves The Hangover Part II from descending into the disaster zone. Cooper looks raffish throughout and has an impish quality which he works to his advantage.

A cigarette-smoking monkey wearing a frilly vest is a device that `Hangover 2’ employs to make us laugh. That’s about the only new thing in this sequel.So dear viewer, if you want to see everything you saw in ‘Hangover’, only transplanted to Bangkok with a drug-peddling simian and a missing human finger, then ‘Hangover 2’ is the movie for you.

All in all, The Hangover Part II has bad ass hangover of The Hangover and makes a forced attempt at squeezing the last drop of laughter out of the zaniness that was the plot of the first film. The film gives you a few giggles and guffaws but no, you won’t be giggling randomly thinking of the movie weeks later. Maybe you will think of Mr Chow and giggle but that’s about it.

The funniest, most reckless moments in The Hangover Part II, the largely mirthless sequel to the 2009 hit “The Hangover,” take place in the final credits.If you superimposed a diagram that mapped out all the narrative beats, characters and jokes in “The Hangover Part II” over one for “The Hangover,” the two would align almost perfectly. Banking on the studio adage that there’s no success like a previous box office hit, Mr. Phillips and company dutifully recycle the first movie to increasingly diminishing ends
